An actor in high demand, Ana de Armas has developed a versatile filmography, with roles in the sci-fi movie Blade Runner 2049, in mystery thrillers such as Wasp Network and The Informer, and the Action-spy film No Time to Die.
Fluent in Spanish and English, the actor started her journey in Cuba and eventually moved to the United States. Her first movie was Eli Roth’s thriller Knock Knock alongside Keanu Reeves.
Ana de Armas as the Bond girl
In an interesting turn of events, Danial Craig’s last feature as James Bond saw him die at the end of the movie, unheard of for the character. No Time to Die also saw Ana de Armas play CIA agent Paloma who aids bond in his mission in Havana.
Despite positive reviews on her performance and appreciation for her action scenes, fans were disappointed to see very little of the Knives Out actor, as she was advertised to have a bigger role in the film.

Next bond to be female?
Despite the fact that James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli confirmed that James Bond will not be a woman, many are still rallying to see the first female super-spy. The studio is rumored to be considering Henry Cavill, Tom Hardy, and many other men for the role.
The Blonde actor has also decided to chime in on the debate, stating there isn’t a requirement to see a female bond but to give bond girls substantial depth. She commented on how the creators need to be faithful to the source material, she said in an interview with the Sun.
“There shouldn’t be any need to steal someone else’s character, you know, to take over….. This is a novel, and it leads into this James Bond world and this fantasy of that universe where he’s at.”
Furthermore, doubling down on keeping the character male, she described her issue with small character roles for females and how it can be changed, she noted:
What I would like is that the female roles in the Bond films, even though Bond will continue to be a man, are brought to life in a different way…. That they’re given a more substantial part and recognition. That’s what I think is more interesting than flipping things.”
In the 34-year-old actor’s new movie Russo brothers’ action-thriller ‘The Gray Man’, she is expected to be doing more of her stunts, stating “I can do that. Let me do that. Let me try”. She is set to appear in the film opposite Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans.
